Like most website businesses, Faretrotter collects information, which isn’t personally identifying, that web browsers and other services make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Faretrotter's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Faretrotter's visitors use our website. From time to time, Faretrotter may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Faretrotter also collects some personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users who have opted in or created API accounts or email address. Faretrotter does not publicly disclose personally-identifying information. We only disclose user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to Faretrotter's websites choose to interact with Faretrotter in ways that require Faretrotter to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Faretrotter gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
We collect personally identifying information in four ways:
1) We ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a name, username and email address
2) We ask visitors who want to read our newsletter for their email address
3) In Alexa, some users request to have an email sent to them, so we store this email address at opt-in
4) We may, at times, collect IP addresses for users who create accounts
The security of your Personal Information is very important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
Faretrotter discloses personally identifying information only to those of its employees.
